DU' * CREAM BAKING nminiKii rUrfDIH MOST PERFECT MADE. 40 YEARS THE STANDARD. I MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1895. Congress has been the 3cene ot two very exciting and sensational episodes during the past two weeks. The first was when Congressman Sibley (Dem.) of Pennsylvania, in the course of a speech on the currency bill, denounced the president as the wrecker of the Democratic party, and the next is nar rated in Monday’s dispatches from Washington detailing particulars of a “scene” between Senators'Gorman and Hill wherein they scored each other roundly. Mr. Gorman declared that the present tariff was a failure as a revenue-producer aud accused Senator Hill of standing in the way of legisla tion that would bring in revenue suf ficient to carry on the government. Mr. llill replied in kind, and the Republi | cans enjoyed the whole affair and ex tracted much comfort out of it. Representative Lowell has Introduced a bill in the lower house of the legis lature to provide for the creation of a bonded indebtedness of $\,100,000 for the purpose of funding the outstanding obligations of the state. A similar measure was before the people at the hate election, but it was voted down be cause the amount called for was gene rally conceded to be about $400,000 in excess of the state’s indebtedness. Mr. Lowell is chairman of the finance com mittee of the house and his investiga tions in this department has shown that the state’s outstanding obligations foot up $1,100,000 and his bill calls for bonds for that amount. The bill is a meritorious one and It will undoubtedly pass in botli houses. The Steamboat Springs Inter Moun tain, the organ of the Populist party in Rio Blanco and Routt counties, has given up the ghost, and the Yampa Valley Democrat—phoenix-like, rises in its place. Rev. J. W. Gunn, editor and owner of the defunct 1. M., is at the head of the new venture, backed by a number of prominent Democrats, and is getting out a well-edited, neat and newsy paper. Mr. Gunn is now on the right track, and The Herald wishes him and the Democrat all possible suc cess. And now the late administration of the state treasurer’s office, secretary of state’s office and auditor’s office is under the Ore of investigation and some ugly transactions are being brought to light —especially in the department presided over by McClees. Tiie llkrald made the assertion during the late campaign that the then existing ad ministration would turn out to be the rotteuest in the history of the state, and the investigations now in progress proves the correctness of our assertions. The tenth annual meeting of the Colo rado State Forestry association will be held at the Denver Chamber of Com merce, corner of Fourteenth and Law rence streets, on Thursday, the 24th inst. Sessions will be held at 10 a. m. and 7:30 p. in. An interesting program has been prepared. It is expected that Governor Mclntire ami General Mc- Cook will deliver brief addresses and the public is cordially invited to attend the meetings of the associations. A close inspection of the Denver papers shows that our representative in the state assembly, Hon. John W. Lowell, is playing a leading role in formulating and shaping the course of legislation in the present session, and we predict that numerous measures, beneficial alike to his constituents and the state at large, will be credited to him before its close. On Wednesday the Colorado legisla ture elected Hon. Edward O. Wolcott to succeed himself as the junior sena torial representative from this state. “Silver Ed,” as he is called, is a tower of strength to the cause of the white metal, and his labors in behalf of silver have earned for him a proud position in the ranks of bimetallists. PITHY PARAGRAPHS. The January cut in the price of wraps does not include senatorial togas. ■# n * So Michigan has also discovered evi dence ot sprouting presidential timber. # * • There are men In several states who now regard senatorial togas as very un becoming to them. * * * That sprained ankle has not caused the withdrawal of ex-Speaker lieed from the presidential running. The professional politician is never more at home than when piloting a so called reform movement. • * The Japanese are also able to cope with Chinese diplomacy. Japan de clines to agree to a temporary peace. *** Senator Wolcott should amend his re quest, asking (ewer (rills in the senate restaurant, so as to include the senate Itself. 1 » # » That dinner would have been worth i more to Senator Hill bad it been ! given about three months earlier. There are men who pray like this : “O Lord 1 make the other fellows give up their railroad passes, but let me keep mine.” it * * The “soul-love” talked of by certain men and women seems to be very near kin to the old-fashioned “passion that sears.” * * ■* If congress could agree as to the proper definition of currency reform there would be more probability of leg islation at this session. * * •* Why should the Washington author ities worry about cigarette pictures and other minor nuisances when they have to put up with congress ? * * * There are as many explanations of why Germany shut out our meat as there are of the Clevcland-llill dinner, and they are probably quite as accurate. * * Those who believe that the best policy of the Fifty-third congress is to confine its legislation to the appropriation bills ought to be delighted with the outlook. ■» * * It is true that currency reform is not a party question, but up to this date congress has not succeeded in divesting it of partisanship—it has not even tried to do so. * * * The governor of Florida will deliver the Standard oil magnates to the Texas authorities just as he prevented the Corbett-Mitchell fight. That is, he won’t do it. * * •* There are a number of men in both branches of congress who need to have no dread of the income tax. After the fourth of March their incomes will never reach the taxable limit. * w And now one of those naughty, naughty New York papers has been showing up the fondness of the con gressional mind for draw poker. This is too bad—for the congressmen. * * ♦ Common sense is on the increase. Among theatrical ventures which have failed this season are, the company that starred the two green-goods men and the John L. Sullivan aggregation. * * * Yankee ingenuity still leads the world. A gang of Connecticut burglars, who evidently are opposed to taking any chances, took tho only policeman in a small town prisoner and then leisurely proceeded to business. •* * * According to the lobby, if congress doesn’t hurry up and pass tho Nicara gua canal bill the English will take hold and build the canal. Well, gentlemen, congress isn’t a bit likely to hurry; but it’s gold dollars to last year’s almanacs that no British money goes into that canal. » * * And after all wasn’t Senator Allen right about that senate restaurant busi ness? Why should a senate committee be empowered to give to a particular individual that which costs SIO,OOO a year ? And why should a restaurant be necessary to the senate, which, as a rule, meets at noon aud adjourns before 5 o’clock ? Horse Prices. The Chicago Ilerald has an article on the low price of horses. It gives some of the reasons why horses are so cheap. The railroads have caused men to give up their teams. Tho use of electricity and steam on the street cars has taken away a demand for a great many thousands of horses. Because of the use of steam on tho farms fewer horses are used. The hard times have made a great many people give up their teams and carriages. Bicycles have been another tremendous factor. There is not much use of horses in the cavalry, and still the Herald thinks that within from five to seven years the hard times for those who raise horses will have passed away. The article is all right except the conclusion, and that is, to hold out a hope that by and by tbo prices for common horses will bo re stored. As we look at it, the day of profit for cheap horses has gone by. If a man desires to make money out of horses, there are only two or three kinds that he will hope to have any reward for. There is a moderate demand for heavy draft horses. So there is for fine coach horses. Of course they must come up to tbo size and have good action. A good many men will want buggy horsos, but they will have to be very swift here after. There is no prospect that plugs will ever be much good in this country. Of course the men who raise race-horses are not influenced particularly by the price. Horse-racing Is a business by it self. The only trouble is it never ought to be indulged in except by rich people, because out of a hundred colts if one is a good race-horse, that makes a fair average. Horses weighing from 1150 to 1850 pounds of good blood, good color, good aotioo, good style and good dis position will always bring a fair prioe, and thfct is about tbe only kind of a horse that men can oertAlnty count on being valuable.—Salt Lake Tribune.
